CALL FOR PAPERS
INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL FOR THE SEMIOTICS OF LAW
Gender and Law Issues
Guest Editors – Alyane Almeida de Araujo and Sarah Marusek
Law, as a mechanism capable of regulating the most varied spaces of public and private life, is not blind to gender. In this sense, the Special Issue “Gender and Legal Issues” of the International Journal for the Semiotics of Law aims to open a space for original articles analyzing the impacts of law from a gender perspective, contributing to advancing this important aspect of critical studies of law.
This issue seeks to highlight how the legal text and the social context are articulated in a gender perspective, considering that the dynamics of perception, interpretation and application of the law demonstrate the limits of theories that reduce the legal phenomenon to a formalistic and apparently neutral legal frame.
We encourage the submissions of manuscripts with an interdisciplinary and innovative angle of analysis, as exemplified but not limited to legal institutes, laws, contracts, international conventions and decisions of international or national courts of justice, in the most varied spaces of public and private life, such as, for example, in the contractual and property relations, in the labor and corporate relations and into the family. We also welcome both qualitative and quantitative studies.
This special issue also has an international vocation, embracing the most varied legal traditions and cultures. Original articles and reviews addressing how legal mechanisms in different countries can produce or reinforce situations of gender inequalities, or, on the contrary, contribute to prevent them are highly encouraged.
We provide a high-quality blind peer-reviewing process to all the papers via our online submission platform, that will result in a relevant publication to innovation in research and practice about law and gender.
Submissions should be addressed to Alyane Almeida de Araujo (email@example.com) and Sarah Marusek (firstname.lastname@example.org) by
- Abstracts of 300 words (maximum) by 1 January 2024.
- After selection, final papers (10,000 words maximum, including endnotes and references) should be submitted by 15 May 2024.
